SexyPlus Clothing: Detroit Girl in a Toronto World

SexyPlus Clothing

Toronto, Canada


I was pulled on stage by Nikki Clarke, the fabulous host of the Fuller Woman Expo. I was excited. I ended up winning a $250 shopping spree to SexyPlus Clothing. I am from Detroit, and I had no idea what kind of clothes they had. I assumed from the name that it was a lingerie store. Boy, was I so wrong.


I thought the store was in walking distance from Dundas Square. The sun burnt right through me on the third block. I had forty bucks to my name in Canadian currency, so I hailed a cab. Whew. 


I hopped out the cab after another six blocks, and finally, I was at my destination.


It was Sunday, and I didn’t have a phone. I was praying they were still open. And they were! Doesn’t the outside look classy and sophisticated?


This is what you see when you first walk in. The counter has some wonderful pieces of jewelry for sale and the dresses on the display and in the window are beautiful (and neat). Along with the beauty of this spot, the smells and scents were amazing, aromatic. I felt like I was on an island.


This is the back of the store. SexyPlus Clothing has sexy lingerie, accessories, shoes, blouses, high-end dresses, and gowns. They have it all.

The best part of trying on all–and I mean all–of SexyPlus Clothing’s dresses was the fabulous employee, Sabrina. She was–I know–by far the best saleswoman I ever had. She helped me accessorize, she was attentive to my needs as a customer, and we had an awesome conversation about everything in that thirty minute duration. Thank you Sabrina.

Over pizza, a friend and I talked openly about hijab and sexism we’d experienced around it. 
Many people assumed that because I wear hijab it means I’m married. Hence, the idea of a woman wears hijab for a man and not herself or for God. 
She shared a story about going to a club with her hijab and being told that she shouldn’t be there by random Muslim men because she was hijabi. She bluntly replied, “Neither you or I should be in the club as Muslims.” Her story triggered me because I too had been through the same scenario. In addition to that I remember when my ex used to constantly tell me that I didn’t love God enough or I wasn’t Muslim because I doubted wearing hijab. But the chick he ended up going out with, during our marriage, was a non-hijabi 🤔 
My friend said something that resonated with me. “If it’s so easy to wear hijab, then why don’t men do it? They won’t. Because it makes them visible.” Being visibly Muslim, for some of us, isn’t easy. To wear or continue to wear hijab isn’t always easy. So, why are we so harsh on non-hijabis? 
When I went to California this summer, I decided that I was going to wear a bathing suit and ditch my hijab. For so long, I always wondered what it’d be like. Although, I felt guilty for showing my body as a Muslim I also felt empowered because I had the choice. And that I was very much so still Muslim whether I was covered or not. 
As a Muslim woman, I applaud you for wearing hijab, but I also understand if you aren’t there yet. Not all Muslims come in one size fits all. 
What are some common misconceptions about Muslim women that you’ve heard? What’s your take on hijabi vs non-hijabi? And anyone can chime in on this discussion ☕️
